I know it has been a few weeks since my birthday but I had said that I was going to share with you what I got. Some of it was presents from family and some of it was just me shopping for myself on my trip to San Diego. I have already shown you a couple things and here are a few more.
At the quilt show Tina bought me this cute bundle of fabric. I love it! The colors are so great! So I went back and bought myself more to use for borders and a binding.
My mom not only got me the yarn but later bought me this great book and templates to make some circle quilts. I have done curved piecing but never a whole quilt filled with the technique. I am excited to make it!
When I got home from my trip my husband and kids were excited to celebrate my birthday with me. My kids gave me a gift card to Jamba Juice (yum!) and a gift card to my local fabric store. They made the cutest cards to hold the gift cards. My husband bought me this book that I have been wanting for two reasons: 1. I love anything from Jennifer Chiaverini 2. My name is mentioned in it for submitting a block to one of the quilts!! It was fun to see my name in print!
The rest of the gifts were from me to me. I bought this black and white bundle at the quilt show. I am collecting black and white prints to make a quilt someday. And of course it will have just a touch of red because I love that.
Tina is so lucky to have Rosie's Calico Cupboard so close to her home. I had to take advantage of shopping there since who knows when I will be back! I bought this cute charm pack and some coordinating fabrics called Pumpkins Gone Wild to make a table runner.
I stocked up on a few red and white fabrics for a red and white block swap I am participating in on Ravelry. Yep Ravelry has a quilting group made up of members who knit and quilt.
A couple years ago Tina and I took a trip to Sisters, Oregon for their annual quilt show. I bought this pattern to make a wall quilt to always remember our trip. I am finally getting around to it and thought buying the fabric for it at my sister's local quilt shop was very appropriate.
The shop also had a nice selection of Heather Bailey fabrics and I couldn't pass up the chance to buy some of the fabric I have only seen pictures of on blogs. It is so pretty, I can't wait to make a quilt with it!
